1.  Scarlett Johansson To Do A Nude Shower Scene…

But we don’t know how sexy it will be. Scarlett Johansson recently signed on to play the role of Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, a tale chronicling the late director’s efforts to make a modest horror movie that is now regarded as one of the greatest works by the iconic director.

As part of the role, the Jewish actress will reenact the classic shower scene in which Leigh’s character, a secretary, is mercilessly murdered and it’s getting a lot of attention from fans and media outlets alike. People magazine Tweeted on Friday, “Psycho is getting a remake—and Scarlett Johansson is scheduled to step into the shower of death.”

 

2.  Disney Drops Segel

It looks like Disney is moving ahead with plans to make a sequel to last year’s film, The Muppets, but Jason Segel, the first film’s co-writer, will not be penning the sequel! The Hollywood News Tweeted on Friday, “The plans are on for #TheMuppets 2! However, Mr Jason Segel, sadly, won’t be involved but read on.”

The Jewish actor co-wrote and starred in the 2011 film, often Tweeting about his love for the project, “If you love the Muppets and want them back please go see it this weekend and show your Muppet love. I have never been more proud of a film!” If made, the sequel will be the eighth theatrical Muppets film since the original The Muppet Movie was made in 1979.

 

3.  Dancing With The Jewish Stars

ABC’s popular dance competition, Dancing With the Stars, announced the new cast for their latest season this week and it includes around 1.4 Jewish celebrities… let us explain.

The 1.4 Jewish celebrities who will show off their moves on the show include Melissa Gilbert, who was raised in her adoptive mother’s Jewish religion, and Gavin DeGraw, whose maternal grandparents were of Russian Jewish descent. We’re not sure how it all works out, but 1.4 sounds good to us! No word on whether or not a routine to the Hora will be a part of this season’s competition…
